        I beg to differ I’m scoring 2000 in quadrant and its barely overclocked

  • Nurhtc

    • Nurhtc

      I have installed clockmod recovery but have no idea how to use the nexus gingerbread and the clockmode recovery has cleaned my phone up. Please Jayce assist.

      • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

        Follow the installation guide and use ClockworkMod Recovery to install it.

        • Nurhtc

          Thanks Jayce. It stopped at 123456 go go go!
          The zip folder contains the following folders: boot, meta-inf and system which are not zip so I copied the nexus gingerbread folder to the SD card but get stuck at the go go go screen.
          Please how do I move forward

          • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

            Copy the zip to SD card and install it with ClockworkMod Recovery. Don’t extract it. See the video guide if you don’t understand. ;)

            • Nurhtc

              I am sorry for bugging you Jayce. I watched the Video but the ROM – nexus hd2 gingerbread is different from the one in the video.

              I have deleted all the files on the SD card and copied the zip folder to the card but stil stuck at go go go

              • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                Which step is that when you stuck at go go go?

                • Nurhtc

                  Yeh ho!!! It worked!!!!
                  The Nexus Gingerbread is super!!!
                  Jayce Thanks!!!!!
                  Please how do I get HTC Sync to work?
                  Thanks again.

                  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                    Glad to hear that. ;) But sorry to tell you that HTC Sync does not work on non-HTC build.

  • Christian

    Hi Jayce,
    I installed using the ClockWork Recovery method, but am seeing HTC in the screen…. Its not getting booted into :-( I waited for more than an hour and still it didnt :-( So now am back to Android 2.2 :-( can you please help me in feeling the Ginger Bread please!!!!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Is this your first ClockWork Recovery Android ROM? If yes, did you wipe all the data and cache before install this Android ROM?

      • Christian

        Hi Jayce,
        Yes, this is my first one. I have deleted all the data in the SD card. I have only the initrd and ZImage and then the zip folder for this 2.6 Gingerbread. So how to clear the cache?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Sorry, my mistake. First one does not need to wipe all the data and cache. I wrote it wrong ‘yes’ should be ‘no’.

          But did you copy the Android ROM zip file or the folder to your SD card? It should be zip file without extract it.

          • Christian

            Hi Jayce,
            Yes, it is the Zip file!!!!

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Hmm… Is the Android ROM installation successful? The phone will show that if everything okay. If this Android ROM is not working, you can try other see. But do remember to install ClockworkMod Recovery again since you are back to normal NAND Android ROM.

              • adi

                i’ve the same issue with christian.. please assits..

                • adi

                  Finally i found how to resolved the issues..
                  you need to wipe data and cache again and install.. :)

            • super piff

              Did you flash the recovery or put it to the root of SD card.

  • cikgujeraul

    long battery life……..hahaha

  • mike

    Hi Jaycee,
    this is my first time installing a NAND Android Zip Rom using clockwork recovery i think i installed everything right but my HTC keeps rebooting and rebooting….rebooting….i dont know what i did wrong did i miss a step or something i did follow the video that you posted.

    hope you can help me out..

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      What is the last step you did until it got this rebooting issue?

      • Mike

        I finally made it to work Jaycee i dont know what i did but persistent reinstalling and installing paid off…i was hoping to install the ultimate droid but it seems that im stuck with the android picture..i waited for an hour but nothing happens…how long did you take yours to load..just wandering…

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Normally around 5 to 10 minutes for most of the Android ROMs.

  • Jade

    Hi Jaycee,

    Could you please help me. I succeed before installing the IMUI by following the video and instructions one by one. When i saw this new post (NexusHD2-Gingerbread v2.6 NAND Android Zip ROM for HTC HD2), i followed my instinct to install it by removing JawsNandRec1.1.zip to SD card root level and added the new Nexus zipped. Then using ClockworkMod Recovery, i loaded them. Now im stuck with HTC logo and power stay on. What i have to do?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      You managed to install MIUI Android ROM right? To install a new Android ROM, you need to wipe data and cache before install. Hope this will help. ;)

      • Jade

        Thanks for your fast respond. To remove data and cache, means i will removed all data from my sd crad and reformat it. Is dat what you mean?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Nope. You need to load into ClockworkMod Recovery. Then do it there.

  • Jade

    Ok. I think, i tried it also. I formatted my sd card then start it all over again from How to Install ClockworkMod Recovery on HTC HD2 and follows by How to Install NAND Android on HTC HD2 with ClockworkMod Recovery.

    Is there a chance that my download zip (Download NexusHD2-Gingerbread v2.6 [Kernel: Tytung r9 oldcam] NAND ROM here.) are not complete or have a problem?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      The installation guide does not include the way to delete data and cache on ClockworkMod Recovery. Do take note on that.

      Yes, corrupted zip file will cause the installation to fail too. Try to extract the zip file to PC see. If can be extracted, then your downloaded zip file is okay. :)

  • ben

    Hi jayce. Apps2sd doesnt work well on this rom, unlike other rom. I cannot move certain app to sd card. Any trick?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      This ROM does not have A2SD+ built-in. You need to install it by yourself. You can find the A2SD update at XDA website.

  • Adi

    Hi Expert,
    how can i set auto install application to sd card?

    As we know, hd2 only have 512MB.. so when we install application it will store to phone storage which is make the phone have a lagging…

    I’ve download App2sd and yes this application can move some application to sd card, but not all application can moved..

    Any other way? Please assists and share with us.. thanks in advance.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hmm… So far all programs that I have are stored at SD card through A2SD+. Which application cannot move to SD card? Maybe you can try to move it manually in Applications Settings.

      • adi

        thanks for quick response jayce..
        application that i cannot move is like whatsapp..android matket…

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Are both of the apps come along with the Android ROM? Note – system applications will be installed at internal storage and cannot move to SD card.

          I just installed Whatsapp on UltimateDroid 3.3 with A2SD+ support. The application managed to install at EXT3 partition on SD card.

  • cliff

    Jayce,I hv installed but face 3 issues,
    1. internal storage not enough, have tried to move to SD by using apps, but this will only move some into SD,not all.
    2.battery consumption, how to improve?
    3. Is the home page limited to 5 pages only?

    Tis.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      1. Install A2SD+.
      2. Huh? This build battery life is good. It can last for 2 days on low usage. Note – 3G eats lot of battery.
      3. Hmm… You should be able to add more.

      • adi

        Hi Jayce,
        Please read this threads http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=699780

        i able to manage your problem by install ModInstallLocation.apk

        Then reboot your phone and set the install location to “external” you will see “move to sdcard” on the app management, and new apps will install there.

        G.Luck~

      • Cliff

        1. I can’t find A2SD+ in android market so i install “App 2 SD Free”. I saw there is forum to partition ext2 to extend the internal storage where apps can install in SD card.
        2. Battery performance improve after i control the display brightness and 3G sync interval.
        3. how to add more page?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          1. Get it from XDA website (link in the post)
          3. My mistake. I thought it is using ADW Launcher which can add more pages. Nexus One only have 5 pages.

    Having problem with bluetooth since i load Gingerbread 2.3. My phone is HTC HD2 run gingerbread 2.3 on NAND. Phone pair and connect to my car’s bluetooth ok but when i try to place a call, it would not get connect with the other end or force close the phone or hang the phone completely (have to remove the battery to restart it). I have wipe and re flash the ROM 4 times already. Before this ROM, i was using Froyo 2.1 & 2.2 running on SD card and this not have any issue with bluetooth. Grateful for any suggestion on fixing this problem.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      There are lot of Gingerbread ROM for HTC HD2. Which one are you using now?
      Or you can try out this one. It is using the latest kernel which has better Bluetooth device compatibility.

      • SID

        I m using typhoon v3.0.6 with kernel r9. I also try the ultimatr Droid ROM. Same problem with Bluetooth. Any suggestion?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hmm… I have no issue with my Bluetooth headset on these ROMs. Maybe you can ask the ROM chef at XDA about your issue.

          • kostas

            have the same problem with typhoon 3.6.1 (has not fixed for long time) when i use bluetooth everything messed up. i have to remove battery to fix it (even the hardware buttons are not working) i have the last radio 2.15 and i already did clean setup (with task 29) i already removed dsp manager and this fixed things a little, but not 100%, still have problems.

  • denis

    ops jaice ok so i will install this new nexus and see if it work… well just tell me what i do first with my old stuff in the sd card and my old nexus is installed, well what do i do? what step i should follow before see the video and do what it is showing ?

  • http://n/a Iain

    ROM working very nicely – BUT GPS won’t work. Is there a fix for this or will it be fixed in a future update – or is it just me!
    Secondly is there a thread I can get to follow further updates to this ROM?

  • Ankur

    Hi Jayce – first of all, this is great stuff you’re doing. It’s been of great help to me, and also the rest of the noobs who’re now flashing their HD2 with kick ass ROMs! :) Many thanks.

    Now questions: Am using the HD2 Gingerbread 2.3.2 ROM that you had posted below a video in an older post. Where you claimed FB, Wifi tethering etc. and camcorder has issues. I loved that ROM (my 1st NAND after wiping Windows. MUCH better than running Froyo from SD card) and have many apps on it. I believe this Nexus S 2.3.3 ROM will let me use the Wifi Router function on the HD2, is that correct?

    If so, can I flash this ROM and retail all my apps and data?

    Lastly, on Froyo (with Sense) from SD Card, I had many numbers on contacts, with many contacts linked. I assumed it was all saved to Google, but i didnt get those links and multiple numbers back correctly from Google. Is that only a HTC Sense feature? Can’t do the same with normal stock Android ROMs without sense?

    Many thanks again! Cheers
    Ankur

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Ankur, thanks for your support. :)

      Most of the latest builds have WiFi router working. I forgot which one. Sorry…

      Better backup all the apps and data with Titanium Backup. Then wipe all data and cache before install another new Android ROM. Then restore back. Some Android ROMs might not boot if you just upgrade on top of existing ROM.

      HTC Sense build does not copy your contacts to Google account automatically. You need to copy them yourself (if not mistaken). As long as your have contacts in Google account. Normal stock Android ROM will get them when you sync.

      • Ankur

        Thanks for your prompt reply, Jayce.

        Yes, I had instructed Sense to store contacts to / and grab from Google. But the ‘links’ across multiple contacts vanished without sense. Not a big deal though.

        Question again — in short, the process to flash this existing NAND ROM was: Run Custom RUU, Update Radio, Install MAGLDR, install Clockwork Recovery, and then finally flash the ROM. I initially installed MIUI, and then just flashed the new regular Android ROM over that by just clearing the memory card but not formatting anything on the phone.

        Which of all of the above steps will I need to re-perform in order to delete the cache and format the existing ROM from my phone?

        Thanks in advance for your help.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          No need to install Custom RUU, Update Radio, Install MAGLDR. Just install Clockwork Recovery, and then finally flash this ROM will do.

          Changing between CWM Android ROM needs to clear data and cache. Normal NAND Android ROM no need.

  • DeeDee

    Hi Jayce:)

    I have a HTC hd2 Leo (tmousa) running mdj 2.3.2 band android I’m trying to update my phone to android 2.3.3. I don’t remember flashing clockwork rcovery to my phone. Also my phone is not recognizing active sync can I use HTC sync to do the update? Plz help I don’t want to brick my phone trying to update it. Thanks.

      Are you having SD card Android or NAND Android now?
